Spencer Boyd and the No. 12 Young’s Motorsports team will have a truly special paint scheme this weekend in the CRC Brakleen 150 at Pocono Raceway. The Chevrolet Silverado will carry a paint scheme that honors Veterans of World War II, and it will pay tribute to the 12th Armored Division of the US Army that served in WWII.
Rich Mar Florist, based in Allentown, PA, will serve as the co-primary sponsor for the race. On the passenger side door rail of the truck will be the name PFC Artillio “Tillie” Martin. Martin, who is a relative of the Morrisey family that has owned Rich Mar Florist since 1955, was a member of the 12th Armored Division in WWII.
Chad Chastain, the younger brother of multi-time NASCAR National Series winner Ross Chastain, has been tapped to compete in Saturday’s Explore The Pocono Mountains 225 at Pocono Raceway, for DGM Racing.

“I’m honored to carry the Mar-Del Watermelon Association colors as they ride along my Chevrolet at Pocono this weekend!” said Chad Chastain, driver of DGM Racing’s No. 91. “It is always an exciting weekend when my two passions collide, and I am eager to continue bringing awareness to the hard-working watermelon farmers across the country.”
